Byron to Start 15th in First Snowball Derby Appearance

December 4, 2015

William Byron will be making his Snowball Derby debut Sunday after qualifying 15th on Friday night for the year's toughest Super Late Model (SLM) race in the No. 9 Liberty University car.  

There were 60 competitors trying to make the 37-car field and the top 30 cars were locked in tonight by their qualifying times.  Byron turned a lap time of 16.237 sec., quick enough to qualify his way into the prestigeous SLM event.  Only four starting spots remain and will be determined by a Last Chance Qualifying race on Saturday where the top-four finishes transer into the main event.

The Snowball Derby begins at 2 pm Sunday at 5 Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Fla.  The race will be aired live on Speed5.com1 via a Pay-Per-View subscription.
